The Not-So-Long Goodbye (and hello)Techpriest

Sat, 22 Mar 2008 15:34:36 +0000

New Episode in the works!Techpriest

Sat, 22 Mar 2008 09:46:56 +0000

After a few months work, a lot of emails, and strangely enough, a lot of ichat usage: the next Across The Pod episode is officially in the works.  It will be a round-table discussion with me, Alex Lindsay and John Foster.  It should be good, we are recording on the 28th march, and the show should be released […]

Scribbling with ScrivenerTechpriest

Fri, 21 Mar 2008 18:28:46 +0000

Word processing is a traditionally utterly mundane task.  Just lay out your document exactly the way it will appear on paper, write it, and print it.  Microsoft word is the titan of this area, dominating well over 70% of the market.  However, a few growing niche alternatives exist, such as Apple’s Pages (’08), which i […]

Blogging FluidlyTechpriest

Sat, 08 Mar 2008 15:03:09 +0000

I just started using fluid.app .  It’s a small app for mac that makes Web-Kit based SSB’s (Site Specific Browser).  In other words it makes a cocoa mac app for your website based on the same great technology of safari.  I used it to create a little app for the wordpress admin for the website. […]

The New DirectionTechpriest

Sat, 08 Mar 2008 14:41:47 +0000

As many of you will know, the podcast that goes with this blog has kind of been stop-start for the last few months.  That’s mainly because i’ve been experimenting to find our niche in podland (wherever podland actually is).  Well, i think i’ve found it.  In future the show is probably going to be a round-table […]

Spotting the “SLR Shot”Techpriest

Sat, 23 Feb 2008 11:34:17 +0000

When i take photo’s i like to think of the “SLR Shot”, think of a photo that you would want printed and hung on a wall, having this mindset helps you take much better photos, landscapes and scenery in particular.  Also, going through your old photos once in a while helps too, as this can […]

Sat, 23 Feb 2008 11:31:48 +0000

Drupal-What nextTechpriest

Thu, 21 Feb 2008 13:31:19 +0000

Drupal is a great CMS (content management system), and has some really powerful uses (such as 43folders.com) but it is limited, if Drupal really wants to become the CMS of choice, i think they need to make some changes.  Take wordpress as a base, wordpress is the most powerful blogging system i know, and i […]

Does someone actually NEED to buy Yahoo?Techpriest

Fri, 15 Feb 2008 12:13:15 +0000

Since the tech community is currently buzzing with speculation about acquisition talks with Yahoo, i was thinking…does Yahoo actually need to get acquired?  Del.icio.us,Flickr,Upcoming: all web 2.0 properties that Yahoo owns, yahoo is also well liked due to its open source mentality.  Yahoo could do very well merely by consolidating into a conglomerate of web […]

Handcoding-the forgotten toolTechpriest

Sun, 10 Feb 2008 12:07:42 +0000

People often get obsessed with the WYSWYG nature of modern web design, i’m asking them to take a step back from that.  With tools like Panics Coda and Mac Rabbits CSSedit using WYSWYG to do basic page layout and then hand coding to fine-tune your site and achieve the look you want, is becoming a […]

The Acquired Taste of TwitterTechpriest

Fri, 25 Jan 2008 10:00:33 +0000

Twitter: i’ll admit it now, i’m hooked.  But more importantly, i wan’t to know why, what is it about Twitter that draws me back time and time again.  At first, there was a certain learning curve to get over, and then i posted once every week or so, in bundles of posts, but now i […]

Quality-a note to web service providersTechpriest

Thu, 24 Jan 2008 20:32:08 +0000

Being a tech junkie does a lot of things to you.  One of the biggest is changing your stances on quality, because after having trawled through hundreds of web services, I’m not willing to put up with anything other than well-written and first-class products (in the realm of web services).  That’s why i use WordPress, i have […]

Fix Delicious!Techpriest

Thu, 24 Jan 2008 20:19:15 +0000

I use the service “Delicious” (at del.icio.us) a lot to bookmark interesting stories and tidbits from the internet (you can see my 7 most recent posts in our website sidebar), and love it.  Its ease of use, sense of community, utility for podcast workflows and more make it one of my must haves.  Unfortunately when i […]

Don’t be afraid to step up to the Geek mic!Techpriest

Tue, 22 Jan 2008 16:57:29 +0000

These day’s i listen to a ridiculous amounts of podcasts, by that i mean gigabytes a week (it’s what happens when you get disillusioned with TV), and as such, have an opinion that (at least i hope) is based on a lot of experience.  Recently, i have noticed how more and more podcast’s are moving […]

This Just In-New Macworld Prediction!Techpriest

Tue, 15 Jan 2008 16:43:38 +0000

There’s just minutes to go, so i’d thought i’d get my totally “out of left field” prediction out there, since no one quite can put their finger on the Steve-Jobs-Keynote Pulse this year-I am predicting a mock funeral for PowerPC, much like the one held at the WWDC keynote in 20002 for Mac OS 9.

Mac Review: MailplaneTechpriest

Gmail in the web browser: Dead. To. Me.Why?  Because a kind developer gave me access to review his app, mailplane.appMailplane is a desktop-gmail client.  For people like me, who manage several gmail accounts, i just open up mailplane, check my default account, and simply click through every account in order, all while retaining Gmail’s user-experience […]

The Pixelcorps.Techpriest

Recently, i have become a member of the organisation known as the “Pixelcorps”.  The Pixelcorps is a guild of content creator’s, tech-heads, and new media Oficcionados.  The thing is, the Pixelcorps is kind of “inside-baseball” at the moment.  Very few people take the time to “review” membership, and explain it on a detailed level.  Well, […]

Get your marshmallow’s, its time to dive into cocoaTechpriestXcode

Many tech-heads know that while having a good operating system is, well…good, it is extremely important to cultivate a high quality developer base, and give back to them. That doesn’t just mean having a stranglehold on the market, as Microsoft does now, people develop for windows, because its windows:If windows didn’t have the mass market […]

Beyond adsense, more polished internet advertisingTechpriest

Sat, 03 Nov 2007 19:12:04 +0000

Love it or hate it, advertising it what keeps the web free. If it wasn’t there, then 1995 would come a callin’ and we’d all be paying subscription fee’s to our favorite websites. So instead, thanks to advertisers, we pay with a little of our time and perhaps a little inconvenience, but for the complete […]
